In 2003, a friend of mine signed us up for a pottery class with Judy Tryon and it ignited a new passion for me. Although my friend didn’t continue with classes, I took as many as I could with Judy until I was ready to practice on my own. I soon joined the Saskatoon Potters Guild in 2005 until I took a break to start a family in 2010. I rekindled my enthusiasm for pottery in 2016 with more lessons from Judy, followed by teaching at the Saskatoon Potters Guild in 2018 and then at Saskatoon Clayworks in 2019. Teaching is truly a passion for me, I enjoy watching students grow and their questions really inspire me to think about pottery in new ways. As there are mountains of different techniques to learn, I will always consider myself a student!
My work is primarily wheel thrown. I enjoy altering but also keeping things clean and simple. I want my pieces to be very functional and try to keep my eye on all the details. My simple glazes make my pieces fit every home and decor.
Born and raised in Saskatoon, I am currently married and raising my two children in the RM of Dundurn where I create in my home studio. It’s an honor and pleasure to be surrounded with so many talented potters that make up Clay Studio Three.
